Format: Paperback
This book has something on everything. Very comprehensive. Written with a slightly liberal, social justice bias, this book is a great introduction to how the Health Care System works in the US, its flaws and recent developments. Knowing very little about the US system beforehand, I now feel I have a solid grounding in the basics, with a knowledge of the higher level issues too. The reference list at the end of each chapter is invaluable. It is worth getting the most recent edition as this 7th Ed has been bang up to date for my purposes, with a LOT of updates on developments under the Obama administration compared to my colleagues 6th edition. I have given only 4 stars rather than 5 as I did find the long sentences a bit too much prose for bedtime reading, I found myself breaking the prose into shorter sentences myself! Nonetheless, the sections are clearly labelled and broken into accessible 1-2 page mini-sections within chapters and the index and contents are very good so I would not say the wordiness should put you off if you are used to reading undergraduate or other academic texts.

As an MPH student, it is critical for us to understand healthcare organization and delivery. This book does a fantastic job! As an added bonus, I have had the pleasure of being taught by Christina herself! I am constantly amazed by her credidentials and the level of knowledge she has acquired over the years.

Difficult to read and understand some of the content. Part of the reason, I'm sure, was because the class was boring and uninteresting.

It's not <insert your favorite fiction novel>, but it's also not reading the dictionary or legal code. I found the text easy to understand and engaging. For a text, it kept my interest and made the content interesting - a great feat for a textbook on health care policy!

Timely book considering our state of affairs. Not the most interesting topic but very important for all of us to know and very interesting for nurses to the history of insurance companies and how complicated our delivery system is and where we can go from here.

This textbook really helped me understand the USA health system better and I look forward to the updated copies in the future. It's a easy and straight forward read, which in my opinion makes a complicated and sometimes boring subject more interesting.

This was a great book that allowed me to see the health care world. There was some history, which was insightful. A lot about Medicare, and the new PPACA. It taught me how the medical industry is almost a fifth of America's GDP.
